Two Weeks in Cuba

Two weeks in Cuba is the perfect amount of time to get a diverse view of the country. Our two week travel itinerary for Cuba will bring you through cities and small towns and provide plenty of beach time. We recommend spending at least four days in Havana as there is so much to explore in Cuba’s largest city. This itinerary begins and ends in Havana and takes you on an overnight trip to Vinales, on to Veradero and then two days each in Trinidad and Cienfuegos.   Cuba's surprisingly diverse terrain...

We arrived during burning season and drove through clouds of smoke coming from the fields on...

The Sarann, Koh Samui

The Sarann occupies a stretch of land along the ocean with a beautiful view of one of the beaches for which Koh Samui is so well known. The main town is about 20 minutes away and a complimentary shuttle is available at certain times to take you there. We immediately noticed the uniform of the staff – their striped tshirts, khaki board shorts and white tennis shoes were reminiscent of yacht attire and were much more laid back than the traditional outfits worn at other five star accommodations in Thailand....

Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort

The Sofitel name is one to which we are always drawn due to their beautiful properties, desirable locations and incredibly well-trained staff.

Classic travel woes. When we finally made it to our room our anxiety melted away and we soaked up the view of the ocean from our balcony. *Photos courtesy of Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua. (Still...
